Mission

Research in Inequalities, Societies and Education (RISE, formerly PFI-UK & RISE and, prior to this, CEREPP) is committed to developing research and theory in social justice, equalities, diversities and education. Our mission is to develop major international and interdisciplinary research to further enrich and energize the research environment and community at the University of Roehampton. We aim to develop a strong institutional and national network of critical scholars, researchers and practitioners and to generate interdisciplinary research, impact and activities, building on critical, feminist and Freirean pedagogies, theories, methodologies, critiques and practices.

Aims and contribution

RISE aims to produce interdisciplinary and participatory research methodologies to help challenge social inequalities in and through educational and other social spaces. We also aim to provide a vibrant intellectual environment where ideas are generated and staff and students can advance their thinking and practice.

RISE aims to develop major international and interdisciplinary research to further enrich and energize the research environment and community at the University of Roehampton and beyond, drawing on critical and feminist perspectives. Deeply informed by Freirean praxis and critical reflexivity, RISE is dedicated to generating interdisciplinary research that draws and builds on critical and feminist pedagogies, theories, methodologies, critiques and practices. It is committed to generating research designed to maximize opportunities for social and educational transformation.
